Corporate versions of Google Docs and Microsoft Office 2010 Live are going toe-to-toe and business users are winning in big organizations.
With more companies turning to working within the cloud environment of the internet, operations are taking on new meanings in the corporate universe. Business apps on the internet are being accessed by IT companies and by average corporations to accomplish a number of tasks and productivity is increasing to excellent results.
According to a Palo Alto Networks survey, network traffic points to a “surprisingly high” amount of users of cloud-based tools out of these corporations. This speaks to early adoption of cloud computing in corporate sectors, which is a good thing considering how much of the next few years will be based around cloud applications and programs.
Google Docs has received quite a few positive reviews and is the choice of many start-ups, but Microsoft Office 2010 Live is being used by more firms. According to the survey by Palo Alto Networks, 79% of firms are using some form of Microsoft Office 2010 Live.
That compares to just 30% of companies using Google Docs to get things done.
Office Live lets users access documents from anywhere through an easy-to-use interface that connects workers across the board. Users register an account to get in to their workspace and can complete and arrange various projects from there.
Companies are finding this sort of working arrangement more popular because it allows them to cut down on actual office hours and thus save money while increasing productivity.
With more people working from home for major companies, applications like Office Live will be the norm soon. As long as Microsoft Office Live can keep people productive with up-to-date, easy-to-use applications, companies can look forward to cutting down on costs while maintaining high standards of production.
